Part of a series: COVID-19 — Nurses’ Notes from the Front Line

When I was a little girl, my mom struggled with her health. I watched as Nurses cared for her. I could tell they were amazing, even as a tiny girl. I knew that healing came from them. I didn’t have words for it back then, but I saw that it was the Nurse, not the doctor, who spent time, bonded, empathized. They were the dynamic caregivers. I knew at age five that I wanted to be a Nurse. Those were the only toys I wanted to play with.
